    Default Pentax Monthly Outing - Aug 2014 - Open for suggestions ....

    Hi Guys,

    It's time for our outing again. There are a lot things going on this month, I wonder if we should go for one of the events (night festival, garden festival ...), or just go somewhere quieter so we can have fun ourselves.

    Any suggestions?

    If it's 24th, I can make it.

    Garden festival sounds good to me.
    Can go in the flower dome for about $11 with safra card.
    Enjoy taking flowers in aircon

    Hi,

    1. Night Festival - Fri 22 & Sat 23 Aug | Fri 29 & Sat 30 Aug (night)- Seems the best to me among all, the night lights at bras brasah and the performance at National Museum.
    2. Garden Festical - 16-24 August, so available for choosing.- Went before, does not seems interesting to me.
    3. Fireworks of NDP- Good but may need good PP to get a decent fireworks photo.
    4. Macro...- Would love to if everyone wanted to.

    Nights Festival looks like most appealing to me as there's a variety of sight & sound activities clustered around the Arts enclave of Armenian St, Bras Basah, National Museum & a Festival village with food & drinks @ Cathay Green.

    I vote for Macro, just got a FA100WR second hand! Time to test it !

    Edit: looking at the rain past few days, is there indoor macro places?

    The Flower Dome at GBTB is really nice imo.
    One can take photos at leisure w/o worry of rain or hot weather.
    Easily takes up half a day if not more finding the ideal subjects and angles.


    Shots taken there during the tulip festival earlier in the year.

    Can we have more outing? I don't mind small ones. I am interested in most of the suggestions here. I can spend one day during each weekend. I am not so familiar with all these places, but would love to join if any one propose.

    Hi JK,
    I agree to that for flower macro shoot (minus the insects).
    The foreseen issue is the crowd on weekends....unless weekday macro shoot....

    If this is not the outing venue, I might go during the weekdays.
    Let me know if you are interested.
